    Add the stock email app, LG calendar widget and the Dual Clock widget to the list. I removed them, and nothing has given me an error yet so that is good. Still looking to remove the LG launcher though, maybe someone has done it and lived to tell about it LOL:icon_ banana:

    Great work!

    Could you give a quick write up of exactly how you removed those files?

    Did you just remove the apks?

    I want to tweak my girlfriends ally, and I too am interested in porting over some droid apks..

    Thanks!

    I'm having trouble. I have "unistalled" myspace app with Titanium a few times, but it never goes anywhere. When I launch the app drawer it's always still there. Even after a reboot. Any thoughts?

    I used z4root. I was able to uninstall a whole bunch of other apps as well. Myspace seems to be the only one that is giving me trouble.

    Maybe its different for each kind of phone. I've managed to root my phone with z4root and in titanium backup the first thing I removed was myspace and then skype and facebook and the useless apps that run in background
